    Recently bought an A series Hartke combo amp for late night practice, just wondering if anyone knew of a set of headphones that are especially great for picking up the low end for under 80 bucks.

    do you want an actual representation of what the music sounds like or do you just want booming bass?

    I've used Sony MDR-V6 headphones for years. I think you can still get them for $50-60. They're not the greatest, but you definitely get your money's worth.

    Sony MDR-V6, V600 or 7506. All good, all very similar, all feature comfort and over-ear coverage with good bass response, and all fold nicely for storage.
